Welcoming The Weekend With The Best Of Mike Tyson Quotes


Estimated Reading Time: 3 Minutes
Sorry this is not the instagram post that Tyson originally made but I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to embed an instagram link and couldn’t because I’m dumb so this will have to do.

Editor’s Note: I got you.

You made it!  It’s finally the end of another work week.  Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is still just sitting at home doing nothing. Plus, this weekend we get an extra day off, so enjoy this out of the ordinary trio of nothing with no responsibilities tied to it!  Go on, enjoy the additional 24 meaningless hours we have been gifted. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a you problem. 

In light of the recent rumor that Iron Mike may make a comeback, I thought now was as good a time as any to bring you a compilation of some of his greatest quotes of all time. I invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy this wordsmith and his silver tongue as he brings you into the long weekend.

If you don’t want to click on a 6 minute video (I don’t blame you, I don’t click on anything over 90 seconds) I have picked out a few of my favorites. Starting with probably his most popular one.

The eat your children line is an all timer for sure but not my favorite.

Next we have the lesser known threat to a minor.

Another instant classic, Mike!

I have, of course, saved the best for last. I do not worry about hyping it up too much because no amount of praise can prematurely ruin what is definitively the greatest quote of all time. Not just boxing. Not just sports. It is the greatest sound bite in all of human history.

Have a nice ‘weekend’ y’all!

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
